This was a great one night stay venue. It has a fantastic location on South Beach and is a beautiful hotel with charm, style and delightful staff. The rooms are small but really stylish and have great character. The rooftop deck is a wonderful and offers a fantastic view over to the ocean. Allan the bellman was very helpful and we highly recommend Paul the Concierge for all the assistance he provided. The lobby bar was great looking and really busy in the early evening. The pool is small, but you're probably not in South Beach or staying at The Betsy to sit at the pool anyway.
Would we stay more than one night? Probably not.
We didn't know that some rooms have a view of the sidestreet/alley. Had we known that we'd have requested a different view before we confirmed our reservation. While it didn't end up being noisy or a major problem during our stay, it was really disappointing to open the shutters and look down at a run down side street, see lots of pedestrian traffic, hear the candid conversations they were having and see the sad accommodations across the side street. We didn't, and you wouldn't want to, pay the rates that The Betsy charges for their rooms while having such a disappointing view.
